  • Get a baby wrap. you can wear her and do things and then leave her in intervals with proper cry it out tactics if you so choose.

  • she could be teething...what about if you do some of your things in the same room with her while she plays with her toys? Or is it housework? She could be wanting comfort from the pain, but she might be seeking out attention.

  • It could be because she's teething, but she is also old enough to start going through that stage of always wanting someone next her. Give her some meds to make sure she's not in pain either teething meds or little bit of tylenol, and let her be. She needs to learn that she can't always be in momma's arms or when she's 2 she's still gonna expect it. I know its me I've been there, but its gonna help her in the long run...good luck!!!
